Grow Herbs in Containers for the Winter

Grow Herbs in Containers for the Winter

5 comments

Fall is the time of year that I start getting concerned for my basil. I'm pretty lousy at calculating how much longer I'll be able to harvest before the frost nails it. Mother Nature has her own calendar no matter where we mark our frost dates.

It's never too early to think about the next major planting season as far as I'm concerned. But that could be because at my age, six months isn't even close to the vicinity of long-term.

Sunflowers not only attract pollinating insects while they're blooming, but at season's end they become an excellent food source for wild birds.

Don't let the kids keep the magic for themselves. When the morning glories begin blooming, get into that sunflower house, lie on your back and admire the glowing blue sky that you and your kids planted.

Weren't we just talking about summer vegetables? Don't freak out on me, we still have plenty of lovely weather left this season and there all the summer lovelies that need harvesting for weeks yet. But, it's always nice to get a little jump on the coming planting season and at least begin to think about what we'd like to see in our fall and winter gardens.

Love Artichokes? Thank the Italians

Love Artichokes? Thank the Italians

Personally, anything to do with Italy is utterly fascinating partly because I'm Italian and partly because I've seen "Under the Tuscan Sun" several times. It doesn't really matter because everyone knows no one does it better than Italy when it comes to food and cars. Man, what Italians do for cars, am I right?

Mix it Up and Grow Mesclun

Mix it Up and Grow Mesclun

It's just short of a felony to smother mesclun with anything rich or creamy. It's like pulling those tags off of pillows (just know you've been warned). My favorite dressings on these babies are the lighters ones. Raspberry or cranberry vinaigrette are tops on these flavorful salads - or try a lemon vinaigrette.

Am I starting them too early? Watering them too much? Too little? Not performing the right Voo-Doo ritual standing naked over them during a full moon? Because if that's what it takes, I assure you, I've done far more for much less.

QUESTION: What is this growing on my basil?

There is a yellow tendril growing on some of my basil plants. It does not seem to be growing from the soil. Only from the plant it self. Can anyone tell me what it might be?

I don't remember when the law started declaring the differences between fruits and veggies, but the law is the law. You can always continue to call watermelon a fruit in the privacy of your own home (I think).

The Gardening Month of June

The Gardening Month of June

I love June. In June all things are possible in the garden. The radishes are ready to harvest, and I’ve already pulled a couple of tomatoes off the vine. I’m not even close to the point in the summer when I wonder if, once again, I’ve planted too many juicy varieties.
